Well, having been comment-spammed to death on my previous blog I've decided to throw myself on the mercy of Messrs Six Apart. I've actually set about about half a dozen Typepad blogs for other people over the last few months, including my now classical-music-blog-celebrity girlfriend, so it is quite nice to be able to use all the shiny functionality myself. I've imported all my previous posts, and I've left the other blog online in order to prevent broken links elsewhere on the web. I have taken great pleasure in turning the comments function off for the last time on that blog, though - the spam was just terrible. I may also have lost some valuable real comments in the cull required to tidy it up. Sorry if I've lost any historic words you may have posted.
So, I can hear you ask - does this move mean that I'm going to post any more regularly? Probably not - I only post stuff when I have what I think are Useful Thoughts. And since I'm not actually very bright, that isn't going to be very often. Sorry!
